BAE Systems plans to open an innovation facility at a cyber center in downtown Augusta, Ga., through a lease on the Nathan Deal Campus for Innovation.

The company said Thursday it will establish the facility at Georgia Cyber Center that offers multiple certification programs for both undergraduate and graduate applicants.

The center, which also houses the Georgia Cyber Range and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's cyber crime unit, is said to be the largest state-level cyber facility investment to date.

“We currently have more than 400 employees providing advanced analytics and information assurance mission support in the Fort Gordon/Augusta market and we are continuing to grow,“ said Peder Jungck, vice president and general manager of BAE's intelligence solutions business.

“Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, and we applaud Georgia's commitment to attracting, training, and growing our nation's cybersecurity workforce,“ said Mark Keeler, vice president and general manager of BAE's integrated defense solutions unit.

“Sharing a campus with students creates tremendous opportunities for collaboration, mentoring, and internships that you will not find anywhere else.“
